  1. Who the hell left that BACK HOE in the middle of the road median that the driver apparently swerved to avoid striking but over-corrected instead? I bet it’s gone now.

    1. That backhoe had nothing to do with her hitting it. It was in the MEDIAN, not in the road. She struck the curb, swerved INTO the DIRT median striking the backhoe! Sadly, it was all the driver’s fault, no one else’s!

  2. Make sure to check her legal status. Sounds like whitee married a ln immigrant like trump. Iliana? Dennis? Like Melania trump. Check the papers.
